The purpose of the Ethics and Legal Standards WG is to provide a forum for focused discussion and development of legal (e.g., I.P.) and/or ethical (e.g., human subjects) standards for the AIRR Community.
Plans for 2019/2020 include:
- Develop a survey to determine if researchers are withholding AIRR-seq data from publication or sharing, and if so, to discover what are their reasons for doing so.
- Investigate IP issues regarding software developed by the combined efforts of WGs and/or teams of AIRR Community Members.
- Develop IP guidelines for how the AIRR Community and its members can best achieve the Community’s goals.
- Developing recommendations for ethical standards for AIRR Community members to follow when generating or using AIRR-seq data from humans.
